The above elevations as fixed shall be measured 
from Chicago City datum as established by the City 
Council of the City of Chicago. 

The roadways of the several streets heretofore spe- 
cified between the points herein described, also the 
roadways of all intersecting alleys extended from the 
curb line to the street line on each side of said speci- 
fied streets between the points herein described, after 
removing the trees therefrom, shall be so graded by 
cutting or filling and compacted by rolling with a 
roller of ten (10) tons weight that after the grading 
of the roadbeds is completed and the pavement herein 
described placed thereon, the surface of the finished 
pavement at the center of the roadway of each of said 
specified streets shall be at the elevation of the top 
of the curbing herein described; and the surface of 
the said finished pavement at the summits in the 
gutters between catchbasins and adjoining the roadway 
face of the curbing shall be three (3) inches below 
the top of said curbing, and at the catchbasin inlets 
in the gutters adjoining the roadway face of the curb- 
ing shall be nine (9) inches below the top of said 
curbing. The slope of the gutters adjoining the road- 
way face of said curbing shall be uniform from the 
summits to the catchbasin inlets. 

A transverse section of the surface of the finished 
pavement and gutters shall be an arc of a circle pass- 
ing through the said gutter elevations and the eleva- 
tion of the center of said finished roadway at every 
part of the roadway of each of said specified streets 
between the points herein described. 

In all intersecting alleys herein specified at the 
street lines of said specified streets the surface of the 



finished pavement adjoining the curbing shall be even 
with the top of the curbing, and the surface of the fin- 
ished pavement at the center of the roadways of said 
alleys shall be three (3) inches below the top of the 
curbing; and a transverse section of the surface of the 
finished pavement at the street lines of said specified 
streets shall be an arc of a circle passing through the 
surface of the pavement adjoining said curbing and the 
surface of the pavement at the center of said finished 
roadways. The surface of the said pavement thence shall 
slope gradually to meet the surface of the finished 
pavement at the curb lines of said specified streets. 

On the sub-grade as formed and compacted shall be 
spread a foundation course consisting of a layer of 
crushed limestone or blast furnace slag of the best 
quality, broken so as to pass through a ring of four 
(4) inches internal diameter and held on a ring of 
two (2) inches internal diameter. The stone or slag 
as spread shall be well graded as to sizes. It shall be 
evenly distributed so as to leave no pockets filled with 
the small size stone or slag. This layer shall be 
thoroughly rolled with a self-propelled three-wheel 
roller, weighing not less than ten (10) tons. The 
rolling shall begin at the edges of the pavement and 
the roller shall move parallel with the center line of 
the roadway. The roller shall progress gradually 
toward the center of the roadway, uniformly lapping 
each preceding track, covering the entire surface with 
the rear wheels and continuing until the stone or slag 
does not creep or move ahead of the roller. After the 
crushed limestone has been thoroughly rolled and 
keyed, limestone screenings shall be applied gradually 
over the surface and the rolling continued until suffi- 
cient screenings have been applied to completely fill 
the interstices. If slag is used, then after it has been 
thoroughly rolled and keyed, limestone screenings or 
fine slag shall be applied gradually over the surface and 
the rolling continued until sufficient screenings or fine 
slag have been applied to completely fill the interstices. 
The screenings or fine slag shall be swept in with hand 
brooms to properly fill the voids. The spreading and 
rolling shall continue until no more screenings or fine 
slag will go in dry. No excess of screenings or fine slag 
shall be used before applying water. Immediately after 
the voids have been filled with screenings, or fine slag, 
the macadam shall be sprinkled until saturated, the 
sprinkler being followed by the roller. More screenings 
or fine slag shall be added if necessary. The sprinkling, 
sweeping and rolling shall continue until a grout shall 
be formed of the screenings or fine slag and water that 
will fill all voids, and form a wave of grout before the 
wheels of the roller. The quantity of screenings or 
fine slag and water necessary to fill the voids shall be 
determined by the Engineer and shall be sufficient to 
produce a rough, granular surface. The rolling, at all 
times, shall begin at the sides, and progress toward 
the center, thoroughly covering the entire surface with 
the rear wheels. When compacted, this layer shall 
measure not less than five (5) inches in thickness. 

The above shall be covered with a layer of crushed 
or broken limestone or slag broken so as to pass 
through a ring of two (2) inches internal diameter 
and be held on a ring of one (1) inch internal dia- 
meter. This layer shall be covered with fine limestone 
screenings, if crushed or broken limestone has been 
used in the first course, or with either limestone screen- 
ings or fine slag if crushed slag has been used in the 
first course. The screenings or fine slag shall be in 
such quantity as to completely fill all interstices. 

The coarse aggregate and the limestone screenings 
or fine slag shall be placed and treated in the same 
manner as specified above for the base course. When 
compacted, this course shall measure not less than 
three (3) inches in thickness. 

On the said foundation course shall be placed an 
asphaltic concrete surface course two (2) inches in 
thickness consisting of an asphaltic concrete mixture 
conforming to the standard requirements of the Illinois 
State Division of Highways for Type I-ll Asphaltic 
Concrete adopted January 2, 1952, as follows: the 
asphaltic mix shall consist of a mineral aggregate 
bonded with an asphaltic cement. The mineral aggre- 
gate shall consist of the best quality of crushed gravel 
or crushed stone in sizes graduated in accordance with 
the following table, viz:

The asphaltic cement shall conform with the stand- 
ard requirements of the Illinois State Division of 
Highways for Grade P.A. 6, Paving Asphalt, adopted 
January 2, 1952. It shall have a flash point (Cleveland 
open cup) 500 plus fahrenheit. It shall have penetra- 
tion at seventy-seven (77) degrees fahrenheit of sev- 
enty-five (75) to eighty-five (85), and at least ninety- 
nine and five-tenths (99.5) per cent of the bitumen 
shall be soluble in carbon disulphide. 

When fifty (50) grams of said paving asphalt is 
heated in an uncovered tin box five and one-half 
(51/2) centimeters in diameter and three and one-half 
(3^2) centimeters in depth, and is held at a temperature 
of three hundred twenty-five (325) degrees fahrenheit 
for five (5) hours, then it shall have lost not over 
two (2) per cent by weight and the penetration of the 
residue thus obtained shall be not less than seventy 
(70) per cent of the penetration before such heating, 
said penetration being determined as herein prescribed. 
Said paving asphalt shall have a ductility of not less 
than one hundred (100) centimeters being determined 
by elongating a briquette Dow form of said paving 
asphalt at uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per 
minute at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees 
fahrenheit. 

The paving -asphalt and mineral aggregate shall 
be mixed when heated between three hundred (300) 
and three hundred fifty (350) degrees fahrenheit in 
an approved mixer to produce a homogeneous mixture 
in which all particles of aggregate are coated uni- 
formly. The heated mixture shall be delivered to the 
pavement in trucks with approved clean tight dump 
bodies. The temperature when delivered at the street 
shall be between two hundred fifty (250) and three 
hundred fifty (350) degrees fahrenheit. Upon arrival 
the asphaltic mixture shall be spread upon the pre- 
pared base at a uniform depth and consistency so that 
the thickness when compacted as herein described will 
be two (2) inches. Immediately after the asphalt sur- 
face course shall be spread it shall be compacted 
thoroughly and uniformly with a three (3) wheel roller 
or a tandem roller. The asphalt paving mix shall be 
dumped first upon approved steel dump pans outside 
of the area on which it is to be spread. Immediately 
thereafter it shall be distributed into place with shovels 
and spread with rakes in layers of uniform density 
and correct depth, unless a spreading machine is used. 
If a spreading machine is used it shall be of a type 
approved by the Board of Local Improvements. Imme- 
diately after the surface course mixture is placed it 
shall be compacted thoroughly and uniformly with a 
three- wheel roller or a tandem roller. One (1) or more 
three-wheel rollers, and one (1) or more tandem rollers 
will be required. The actual number of such rollers to 
be used shall be determined by the Engineer in accord- 
ance with the progress of the work. If the production 



of the asphalt plant delivered to the pavement exceeds 
seventy-five (75) tons per hour additional rollers shall 
be furnished as directed by said Engineer. After final 
rolling the asphalt surface course shall at all points 
have a density of not less than ninety-five (95) per 
cent of the maximum possible density of a voidless

were issued have not been received by the City; 
and 

Whereas, It is now deemed expedient to convert 
said tax anticipation warrants into money for the 
restoration of the funds invested in said tax an- 
ticipation warrants for use for the particular pur- 
poses for which said funds were set aside; now 
therefore,

nautics Administration of the United States Gov- 
ernment require that the Amendment to the said 
Grant Agreement be set forth at length in the 
ordinance of the governing body of the City of 
Chicago, to-wit the City Council, and the recital did

Report of Activities of Dept. of Subways and Superhighways Financed by MFT Allotments 
— Placed on File. 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report recommending that the City Council Place on File a report 
from the Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways covering activities of his department which were 
financed by Motor Fuel Tax Fund allotments. 

On motion of Alderman Wagner the committee's recommendation was concurred in. 

Said report, signed by V. E. Gunlock, Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways, dated March 5, 1952, 
reads as follows: 

"There is submitted herewith a report covering activities of the Department during the months of May 
and June, 1951, which were financed by the Motor Fuel Tax allotments. 

These activities incluued surveys, designs, preparation of contract plans and specifications, acquisition 
of right-of-way and construction for the West Route, Northwest Route, Wacker Drive, North Route and 
South Route; and included studies, surveys, and preliminary plans for other routes of the Comprehensive 
Superhighway System. 

Two hundred ninety-three parcels of property required for the City's share of the right-of-way for the 
West Route Superhighway have been acquired. Five hundred twenty-three parcels of property required for 
the State's share of right-of-way for the West Route Superhighway and three parcels of property required 
for the State's share of right-of-way for the Northwest Route Superhighway have been acquired for the 
State of Illinois in accordance with the agreements signed March 25, 1946, as revised 12-26-50, and July 8, 
1947 respectively. The Department of Subways and Superhighways will be reimbursed in full of all costs in 
connection with right-of-way acquisition for the State of Illinois. Eighty parcels of property required for 
the City's share of right-of-way for the Northwest Route Superhighway; eleven parcels of property re- 
quired for the City's share of right-of-way for Wacker Drive Extension; eleven parcels of property required 
for the City's share of right-of-way for the South Route and two parcels of property required for the City's 
share of right-of-way for the North Route have been acquired. 

Attached hereto is a tabulation indicating the expenditures for the months of May and June, 1951, and 
the total expenditures to June 30, 1951."

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



April 16, 1952 



Progress Report on Construction of West Route of Comprehensive Superhighway System 

— Placed on File. 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report recommending that the City Council Place on File a report 
from the Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways concerning progress made on construction of the 
West Route of the Comprehensive Superhighway System. 

On motion of Alderman Wagner the committee's recommendation was concurred in. 

Said report, signed by V. E. Gunlock, Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways, dated March 24, 1952, 
reads as follows: 

"In order that your Committee and the City Council may be advised as to the progress being made on 
the construction of the West Route Superhighway, I wish to report as follows: 

The award of Contract Section Congress Street 2323.2 of the West Route Superhighway to Walsh Con- 
struction Co. providing for Alterations to Congress Bank Building, was authorized by the City Council May 
10, 1951 (C. J. p. 143). The specifications provide that the contract shall be completed by April 1, 1952. It is 
now apparent that this contract will not be completed within the specified time. 

The contract provides that under certain conditions, the Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways 
may grant to the contractor an extension of time occasioned by delays which are entirely beyond the con- 
tractor's control. 

The contract also provides that if the contractor does not meet the requirements as to time, progress 
and final completion of the work within the period specified, then the City may declare the contract for- 
feited. However, inasmuch as it now appears that the Superhighway completion will not be delayed by 
permitting the contractor to finish this work, it is our opinion that the interests of the City will be best 
served by allowing the contractor, upon the consent of its surety, to continue and complete the contract 
even though there be a technical default as to the time of completion." 



Miscellaneous Matters — Placed on File. 

The Committee on Finance submitted reports rec- 
ommending that the City Council Place on File certain 
miscellaneous documents transmitted therewith. 

On motion of Alderman Wagner the committee's 
recommendations were concurred in. 

The following is a summary of said matters: 
(March 27, 1952) A communication from the De- 



partment of Law under date of March 24, 1952 con- 
cerning a Supreme Court decision aflfiirming a judg- 
ment of the Superior Court of Cook County in favor 
of the City, denying back-salary claims of certain 
policemen and firemen; 

A communication from the Commissioner of Public 
Works under date of March 21, 1952, submitting Prog- 
ress Report No. 58 for the month ending February 
29, 1952, showing progress of construction on Sewer 
Bond Issue Projects.

former committee], submitted a report recommending 
that the City Council pass said proposed ordinance 
(transmitted therewith), which reads as follows:

to those of a Manufacturing District, and a cor- 
responding use district is hereby established in the 
area above described. 

Section 2. This ordinance shall be in force and 
effect from and after its passage and due publi- 
cation. 

On motion of Alderman CuUerton the committee's

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 
COMMITTEE ON HARBORS, WHARVES AND BRIDGES. 



2225 



Declaration Made for Immediate Expenditure of 

Appropriated Funds, and for Additional 

Appropriations, for Repair of Street 

Ends Damaged by Waters of 

Lake Michigan. 

The Committee on Harbors, Wharves and Bridges 
submitted the following report : 

Chicago, April 14, 1952. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Harbors, Wharves and 
Bridges, to which was referred March 12, 1952 a 
communication from the Commissioner of Public 
Works to the Committee on Finance suggesting 
the need for an additional appropriation "for the 
protection and repair of pavements at street ends 
along the shore of Lake Michigan", begs leave to 
advise Your Honorable Body that as stated in the 
communication of the Commissioner of Public 
Works and as developed in a public hearing held 
by Your Committee on March 31, 1952, the $75,000 
appropriation set up in the 1952 Appropriation 
Ordinance under account 263-S-7 will be insuffi- 
cient to adequately do the work that is necessary 
to protect all of the street ends abutting Lake 
Michigan in Chicago and that at least $250,000 
additional will be required, which amount, it is 
estimated, can be obtained from the vehicle tax 
fund. 

Your Committee therefore recommends: 

(a) That it be the sense of the City Council 
of the City of Chicago that the $75,000 hereto- 
fore appropriated in the 1952 Appropriation Or- 
dinance be expended for the immediate repair 
of those street ends at which the damage is most 
severe and need for repair most urgent; and 

(b) That an additional appropriation of at 
least $250,000 be made at the earliest oppor- 
tunity to complete the work of street end re- 
habilitation made necessary by high lake level 
combined with lake storms. 

Your Committee further recommends that the 
said communication from the Commissioner of 
Public Works be published. 

These recommendations were concurred in by 
10 members of the committee, with no dissenting 
votes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) E. V. Pacini, 

Chairman. 

On motion of Alderman Pacini the committee's rec- 
ommendations were concurred in. 

The following is the communication referred to in 
the foregoing committee report: 

March 8, 1952. 
Committee on Finance 
City of Chicago. 

Attention: Alderman C. P. Wagner 
Chairman 

Gentlemen — The level of Lake Michigan is un- 
usually high and the winds and storms are causing 
enormous damage. Dr. F. W. Trezise, Assistant 
Dean of Engineering, University of Illinois, has 
said that this damage may reach upwards to $12 
or $15 million between Waukegan and the Indiana 
State Line. Much of the burden for repairs and 



replacement will fall upon the Chicago Park Dis- 
trict, 

The City proper is concerned only with street 
ends but conditions will be worse in 1952. Last 
year the lake level was higher than at any time 
in 92 years, with the exception of 1886. Every 
responsible informed official concerned with the 
subject predicts that it will be still higher this 
year. Among the forecasts are: 

Martin W. Oettershagen, Harbor Engineer for 
Chicago, estimates that the lake level will be a 
foot higher, on an average, than last year. The 
level was 21 inches higher in December 1951 than 
in the previous December. The Oettershagen fore- 
cast means that the level will be approximately 
21/2 feet above Chicago City datum. 

Col. Wendell P. Trower, Division Engineer U. S. 
Corps of Engineers, predicts that the water will be 
slightly higher than the stage of 1886, which was 
3.52 above the City datum. 

Horace P. Ramey, Assistant Chief Engineer of 
the Sanitary District, an authority on lake levels, 
predicts that the 1952 level will be 18 inches above 
the 1951 level. 

Dr. F. W. Trezise, Engineering Dean of Univer- 
sity of Illinois, thinks that the 1952 level will 
average 15 inches above 1951. 

Robert A. Black, Chief Engineer Park District, 
forecasts considerable difficulty with a rise of 1 to 
2 feet. 

Joseph L. Rose, Evanston Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works, is apparently afraid of the enormous 
damage that would be done in that suburb. These 
statements refer to normal averages of lake level 
stage. They do not take into account abnormal 
fluctuations in lake level, which are the result of 
barometric disturbances combined with high levels 
plus high winds off the lake, which on one occa- 
sion during October, 1951, brought the lake level 
to 31/2 feet above the Chicago City datum. 

By your decision in the 1952 appropriation, you 
appropriated. Account 263-S-7, $75,000 for the 
"protection and repair of pavements at street ends 
at shore of Lake Michigan". This account you 
placed in the Department of Streets and Electricity 
(to which we have no objection) but it is un- 
sufficient to take care of the damage so far done. 
Mr. Oettershagen estimates that it will cost a mini- 
mum of $250,000 to repair and protect the street 
ends which he has inspected. A more accurate 
estimate after the removal of snow and ice, may 
increase the amount. 

This letter is unusual. It is a request for an 
added large sum to the appropriations of Commis- 
sioner Johnson's Department of Streets & Elec- 
tricity nor is it frequent that a request for added 
money indicates where the money can be obtained. 

The collection for vehicles by the City Collector 
in January and February of each of the preceding 
nine years have been compiled in the relationship 
for the total collections for the year. These two 
months vary from 47.1 per cent to 69.2 per cent 
of the years collections. 

The collections reported by Mr. Prendergast for 
the last two months are $11,247,630. If those two 
months are 60 per cent of the collections for 1952, 
the total collections would be $18,746,050. If those 
two months represent 66 per cent of the 1952 col- 
lections they will total $16,871,445. If, however. 



2226 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



April 16, 1952 



the two months are 70 per cent, — which is higher 
than any year of the last nine, the collections will 
total $16,068,045. 

The collections for 1952, with an increase of 50 
per cent in fees are estimated in your budget at 
$15,500,000. Accordingly, if the last two months are 
70 per cent of the 1952 collections, the amount of 
money from vehicle taxes this year will be $568,045 
above the estimated revenue of 151/2 naillion. There- 
fore, it seems highly probable that the vehicle tax 
income this year will be sufficient to permit the 
repair, rehabilitation and protection of the street 
ends and also for the protection of the Meigs Air- 
strip, the only item in which this department is 
officially concerned. 

For your convenience there is attached a state- 
ment showing the collections of the first two 
months of each of the last ten years as compared 



with the total collections of each year with the 
percentage indicated. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) O. E. Hewitt^ 
Commissioner of Public Works.

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

An Ordinance 
Prohibiting and Restricting Traffic on W. Van

S. Sacramento Boulevard. 

WHEREAS;, the City of Chicago, through the de- 
partment of subways and superhighways, under 
authority of orders and ordinances duly passed by 
the city council, and in accordance with agree- 
ments by and between City of Chicago, County of

ceedings and otherwise property necessary for the 
right-of-way for the West Route; 

Whereas, by reason of the progress made and 
in order to proceed with the construction of the 
route it is now necessary to clear the right-of-way

ings and structures which interfere with its con- 
struction ;

the right-of-way and to relocate that portion of the 
Garfield Park elevated division on the surface of 
W. Van Buren Street between S. Aberdeen Street 
and S. Sacramento Boulevard and to operate its 
trains thereon until permanent trackage shall have 
been provided in the median strip between the two 
roadways of the West Route Superhighway; and 
Whereas, such temporary train operation will 
add to the traffic burden and constitute an addi- 



tional hazard in said portion of W. Van Buren 
Street, therefore,

Buren Street between S. Aberdeen Street and S. 
Sacramento Boulevard by Chicago Transit Author- 
ity (including the operation by Chicago, Aurora 
and Elgin Railway Company if it elects to operate 
its trains on said tracks) has been discontinued

ways of the West Route Superhighway, it shall be 
unlawful for any person to operate any vehicle

U. S. Tariff Commission Requested to Change Tariff 

Structure Relating to Bicycles and 

Bicycle Parts. 

Alderman Cilella moved that the Committee on 
Judiciary and State Legislation be discharged from 



further consideration of a proposed resolution (re-

United States Tariff Commission to take such steps

structure concerning bicycles and bicycle parts, and 



April 16, 1952 



MISCELLANEOUS BUSINESS 



2291 



that said proposed resolution be taken up for im- 
mediate consideration. 

The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Cilella moved to adopt said proposed 
resolution. 

The motion prevailed. (Aldermen Carey, Cohen, 
Muir, DuBois and Becker asked that the record 
show that they voted "No".) 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas^ Two of the largest American manu- 
facturers of bicycles are located in Chicago, Illi- 
nois; and 

Whereas^ The said manufacturers employ large 
numbers of residents in the Chicago metropolitan 
area in various capacities; and 

Whereas, The said manufacturers contribute 
substantially to the tax revenues of the City of 
Chicago, County of Cook, and State of Illinois; and 

Whereas,, The said manufacturers are a source 
of business to numerous other suppliers and pro- 
ducers situated in the City of Chicago and County 
of Cook; and 

Whereas, Because of an inequitable tariff struc- 
ture imports of foreign bicycles in 1950 increased 
400% over the previous three-year average, and 
increased to approximately 900% in 1951 over the 
same three -year average; and 

Whereas, Current imports of bicycle parts are 
now 1500% greater than during the period immedi- 
ately preceding World War II; and 

Whereas, These imports have resulted in a sub- 
stantial loss of sales to American producers of 
bicycles and bicycle parts and now threaten their 
very existence; and 

Whereas, The said imports, unless checked, will 
continue at even a greater rate; and 

Whereas, The present tariff structure renders it 
impossible for American manufacturers of bicycles 
to cope with foreign competition based upon de- 
based labor rates prevailing abroad; and 

Whereas, An application for tariff relief to the 
bicycle industry of America is now pending before 
the United States Tariff Commission in Washing- 
ton, D. C. ; and 

Whereas, The people of Chicago have a vital 
stake in the granting of such relief ; 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the Council 
of the City of Chicago, Illinois, memorialize the 
United States Tariff Commission to take such steps 
as may be necessary to rectify the present inequit- 
able tariff structure relating to bicycles and bicycle 
parts and thereby to prevent the threatened des- 
struction of the bicyle industry of America. 

Resolved Further, That a copy of this resolution 
be sent forthwith to the United States Tariif Com- 
mission for its consideration.

Whereas, May 17, 1952 has, by presidential

Youth Week in Chicago. 

Whereas, the physical, mental and spiritual 
well-being of our youth is a prime responsibility 
of civic life; and 

Whereas, a group of public-spirited citizens, in 
cooperation with public and private youth-serving 
agencies, sets aside a special week each year to 
focus the attention of our adult population on the 
agencies serving youth the year around; and 

Whereas, Chicago's 31st annual observance of 
Youth Week will be held from May 11 to 17, in- 
clusive, with the theme "Help Youth Help Itself";

young people in their daily activities embracing

and recreational areas;

state organizations, including the Illinois Federa- 
tion of the Blind; and 

Whereas, this observance constitutes an im- 
portant part of the program carried on by the 



blind themselves in their efforts to extend and 
broaden the opportunities for economic independ- 
ence among the presently estimated 10,000 per- 
sons who are actually employed and self-support- 
ing to the other 110,000 blind who are fully

of the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the

mercial aviation for more than a quarter century;

mercial aviation industry from the early single- 
engine open cockpit plane to the present day five- 
mile-a-minute airliner has been centered in 
Chicago; and 

Whereas, Chicago's Midway Airport has become 
the aviation crossroad of the world, being served 
by seventeen scheduled airlines linking our city 
with the four corners of the globe by means of 
passenger, cargo and mail services; and

growth is playing an ever-increasingly important

its future development, do hereby proclaim May

JOURNAI^-CITY COUNCILr— CHICAGO 



April 28, 1952 



Amendment of Rules of Board of Health Concerning 
Inspections of Laboratories and Kennels of 
Institutions Receiving Animals from 
Municipal Animal Shelter. 
Also a communication addressed to the City Council 
signed by Francis A. Dulak, M.D., Secretary of the 
Board of Health, transmitting the following resolu- 
tion stated to have been adopted by the board on 
March 18, 1952: 

Resolution 
To Amend the Rules of the Board of Health 
Adopted October 18, 1944. 

Whereas, an opinion of the Corporation Counsel, 
dated November 5, 1951, states, in part, as follows: 
"It is clear that where the law creating a 
public body fails to designate the number of its 
members required to be present in order to 
perform an official act, a majority at least must 
concur and unite in the performance of the act. 
As previously stated, Section 98-34 of the Code 
which creates the Advisory Committee, does not 
provide for the number of the members of the 
Committee required to be present to inspect 
the institutions enumerated in the ordinance. 
It is, therefore, our opinion that Mrs. Rutson 
as an individual member of the Committee has 
no authority to make such inspections and that 
at least a majority of the members of the Com- 
mittee must conduct the inspections required by 
the ordinance;" and 

Whereas, an opinion of the Corporation Counsel 
dated March 7, 1952, states, in part, as follows: 
"In view of the foregoing, we suggest that the 
above-quoted provisions of the rules and regu- 
lations be amended to provide that at least a 
majority of the members of the Advisory Com- 
mittee inspect the institutions enumerated in 
Section 98-34 that receive unclaimed dogs from 
the Municipal Animal Shelter." 
Be It and It Is Hereby Resolved, that paragraph 
six of the rules adopted by the Board of Health 
on October 18, 1944, be amended to read as fol- 
■ lows : 

"Committee members, provided there is at 
least a majority of the members of the Advisory 
Committee present, shall be permitted at any 
time, without advance notice, to inspect the 
laboratories and kennels of these institutions 
receiving animals from the Municipal Animal 
Shelter." 

And, Be It and It Is Hereby Resolved, that 
paragraph ten of the rules adopted by the Board 
of Health on October 18, 1944, be amended to read 
as follows: 

"The President of the Board of Health shall 
refuse further allotments of animals from the 
Municipal Animal Shelter to any institution 
refusing immediate admittance to members of 
the Committee, provided that at least a majority 
of the members of the committee make the in- 
spection." 
— Referred to the Committee on Health.

mission for First Quarter of Year 1952.

bounded by E. 46th Street, E. 47th Street, S. Green- 
wood Avenue and S. Woodlawn Avenue, together with 
a proposed ordinance for the vacation of said alley,

Executed Counterpart of Temporary License 

Agreement for Replacement of Two Mooring 

Cleats Along East Dock Wall op 

Chicago River. — Ordered Filed 

with City Comptroller. 

The City Clerk transmitted a communication ad- 
dressed to the City Council under date of April 16,

ways and Superhighways, reading as follows: 

"Gentlemen — Transmitted herewith for the per-

executed counterpart of the temporary license 
agreement, dated as of April 11, 1952, between the

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



2299 



Alderman Bohling stated that the special elections 
called by the City Council to be held June 2, 1952, for 
referendums on the questions of issuing certain bonds, 
would have to be conducted in each individual pre- 
cinct, at an added expense in excess of $350,000.00, 
and he thereupon presented a proposed ordinance to 
repeal the four ordinances passed by the City Council 
on April 16, 1952, calling special elections to be held 
on June 2, 1952. 

Alderman Bohling (seconded by Alderman Mer- 
riam) moved to pass said proposed ordinance. 

Alderman Wagner moved to lay the proposed ordi- 
nance on the table. 

The motion to lay on the table prevailed. (Aldermen 
Merriam and Bohling requested that the record show 
that they voted "No".) 



Statement Concerning Plans for Revision of 
Chicago Zoning Ordinance — Referred. 

The City Clerk transmitted a communication ad- 
dressed to the City Clerk under date of April 28, 
1952, signed by William M. Spencer, Chairman of the 
Chicago Plan Commission, transmitting the following 
statement, which Mr. Spencer states in his communi- 
cation has been approved by the Commission: 

Report of Michael F. Charley, Chairman, Com- 
mittee on Land Use and Zoning, Chicago Plan 
Commission. 

Regular meeting of April 24, 1952. 
The Executive Committee has directed that this 
report be made on the status of Zoning Revision 
and the pertinent responsibilities of the Chicago 
Plan Commission. 

The first Chicago Zoning Ordinance was adopted 
in 1923 and revised in 1942. While the history of 
zoning shows Chicago to have been a leader in 
this field, the present Chicago Zoning Ordinance 
is widely recognized as in need of revision as a 
result of the processes of city growth and recog- 
nized requirements of the city's improvement and 
redevelopment programs. The Plan Commission 
has in recent years urged comprehensive revision 
and has directed much of its work toward the 
time when its studies could be utilized for this 
purpose. 

The City Council Committee on Buildings and 
Zoning has worked toward the same objective. 
Preliminary work has been completed and Alder- 
man CuUerton, Chairman of the Council Commit- 
tee, and an ex-officio member of the Plan 
Commission, has formulated a plan of organization 
to bring about a full and comprehensive revision 
within the shortest possible time. 

The relationship of the Zoning Ordinance to the 
City Plan is basic. Zoning is one of the principal 
means of putting the City Plan into effect. At 
the same time, courts across the country have 
come to give the most weight to those zoning or- 
dinances which are based upon comprehensive 
long-range city plans. Alderman CuUerton's plans 
fully recognize these facts. 

The work of Zoning Revision in Chicago will 
consist of three major parts. 

First, the parts of the City Plan which deal 
with land use must be completed and approved 
by the Plan Commission. 

Second, long-range general plans must be ad- 
justed and detailed to meet the present-day con- 
ditions under which the Revised Zoning Ordinance 



must be administered. This entails the writing of 
a new text and the preparation of a new Zoning 
Map. 

Third, public hearings must be held and the 
Ordinance adopted in its final form by the City 
Council. 

In each of these parts, the Plan Commission 
will be responsible for major work or assistance. 
The preparation of the City Plan is, of course, 
our primary responsibility. Under Alderman 
CuUerton's plan of action, the general plans pre- 
pared and approved by the Plan Commission will 
be used to establish the basic policies of land use 
on which the revised zoning ordinance will be 
based. We expect that the Council Committee 
will furnish the Plan Commission with all the 
assistance needed to complete those parts of the 
Plan directly affecting Zoning Revision, especially 
in the necessary thoroughfare planning and in 
commercial land use studies. This will augment 
work already done in the Central Area Plan, the 
Industrial Study, the Study of Residential Densi- 
ties, the Recreation Study, various housing and 
redevelopment planning, and in the studies under- 
taken in connection with the preliminary compre- 
hensive plan of 1946. 

In the part of Zoning Revision which involves 
the detailed preparation of text and district maps, 
the staff of the Plan Commission will work as 
necessary with a staff to be assembled in the Plan 
Commission offices by Mr. H. Evert Kincaid, who 
has been retained by the Council Committee as its 
consultant. Mr. Kincaid will be directly responsible 
to Alderman Cullerton and his committee, but 
will require the collaboration of the regular staff 
of the Plan Commission and our technical advisory 
committees. This work will also require the use 
of the Commission's maps, community studies, 
research files, and general administrative facili- 
ties. 

In connection with the public hearings and the 
legislative action on the Revised Ordinance pre- 
pared by Mr. Kincaid for the Council Committee, 
the Plan Commission staff will prepare for Com- 
mission review and approval a full analysis of the 
proposal. This analysis will then be presented at 
the public hearings as a statement of the Plan 
Commission as to the effectiveness with which the 
Commission's general plans have been written 
into the proposed ordinance. 

We believe that this plan of operation is a 
highly practical way of securing Zoning Revision 
with the fullest degree of cooperation and collab- 
oration between the Council Committee on Build- 
ings and Zoning and the Plan Commission. It is 
in full harmony with both the legislative authority 
of the City Council and the objectives of the Plan 
Commission. 

We believe that the action taken by Alderman 
Cullerton not only represents a great step forward 
for Chicago but also gives to this Commission one 
of its greatest opportunities to be of service to the 
City Council and Administration. 
— Referred to the Committee on Buildings and Zon- 
ing. 



Statement Made by Alderman Cullerton. 
Alderman Cullerton thereupon made the following 
statement to the members of the City Council: 

Mr. President and Members of the City Council: 

I have a very important announcement to make 

to you today regarding the progress made by the 

Committee on Buildings and Zoning in compliance 



is.. 



2300 



JOURNAI^CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



April 28, 1952 



with ordinances adopted by this Council, calling 
upon our Committee to proceed with the plan for 
rezoning of Chicago. 

Considerable data has been assembled by the 
Committee and its staff, in preparation for a 
preliminary report which will be made to the 
members of the City Council and all interested 
parties in approximately thirty days. This report 
will be titled "Rezoning Chicago" and will be a 
presentation of the zoning problems in our city, 
as well as steps to be taken by the Committee on 
Buildings and Zoning, to bring about expeditiously 
a new zoning ordinance that will be ultimately 
set down for a series of public hearings. 

I shall announce within the next few days the 
appointment of nine members of the City Council, 
who shall serve on the Rezoning Sub-Committee, 
charged with the responsibility of conducting pub- 
lic hearings throughout the city. 

To carry out the technical aspect of rezoning, 
I have selected the firm of Kincaid and Hutchin- 
son as consultants to the Committee, with Mr. H. 
Evert Kincaid of that firm in full charge of rezon- 
ing activities. We are indeed fortunate in obtaining 
the services of Mr. Kincaid, who has had great 
experience in rezoning, not only in Chicago, but 
in many other large cities as well, being formerly 
Executive Director of our Chicago Plan Commis- 
sion. He has first-hand knowledge of the functions 
of all city departments. He shall employ his own 



staff, and will establish offices with the Chicago 
Plan Commission in this building. He will work 
very closely with Col. Spencer and the staff of 
the Plan Commission in the co-ordinating of zon- 
ing maps and ideas. 

We are now ready to begin the larger job of 
reappraising all of the zoning districts and re- 
writing the ordinances so that the people of 
Chicago will enjoy g^feater protection to their 
property and at the same time provide an oppor- 
tunity for their city to become a better place in 
which to live and work. 

I wish to strongly impress upon every member 
of the City Council that he should take a direct 
interest in the rezoning of Chicago, because his 
individual ward will be tremendously affected and, 
therefore, the people in his ward shall expect him 
to properly represent their views at public hear- 
ings and to the Committee on Buildings and 
Zoning. 

His Honor, Martin H. Kennelly, at a press con- 
ference Wednesday, said that this is the greatest 
responsibility undertaken during his administra- 
tion, and I subscribe to these views. 

I shall present to each member of the City 
Council, in approximately thirty days, a copy of 
the preliminary rezoning of Chicago report, and 
I urge that each of you study it carefully and 
submit your views to our staff. 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



Committee reports were submitted as indicated below. No request under the statute was made by a/ny 
two aldermen present to defer amy of said reports, for final action thereon, to the next regular meeting of 
the Council, except where otherwise indicated below. 



COMMITTEE ON FINANCE.

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

March 10, 1952 
To the Honorable, the Chairman 
amd Members of the Committee 
on Finance of the City Council 
City of Chicago, 
Chicago, Illinois: 

Gentlemen — No Motor Fuel Tax Funds were 
appropriated or made available for use by this 
department for the year 1952, but instead an ap- 
propriation was made from Superhighway Bonds 
(C.J. 12-17-51, p. 1539) in the amount of $13,- 
500,000.00 for construction of Superhighways and 
appurtenances thereto. Due to the fact that we 
are anxious to maintain the progress of construc- 
tion on the Wacker Drive Extension in accordance 
with an established program schedule and also 
because available funds will be sufficient for our 
requirements only until about June, 1952, it is 
necessary at this time to request a portion of the 
previously appropriated $13,500,000.00 to carry 
forward the work on the Wacker Drive Extension. 

I, therefore, respectfully request that your Com- 
mittee recommend to the City Council that it 
authorize the expenditure of $300,000.00 from Su- 
perhighway Bond Fund Account 468-X for engi- 
neering, legal and appraisal services and expenses, 
title searches and ownership reports, and for such 
services, rents, materials, supplies and equipment 
as may be required for surveys, borings, investi- 
gations and studies and for the preparation of 
drawings and specifications and for the supervi- 
sion of the construction and for the services of 
engineering, legal, real estate, building, architec- 
tural, electrical, mechanical and other experts, 
valuators and clerks and other personal services 
and expenses and such services, rents, materials, 
equipment and supplies not otherwise specifically 
provided for which may be necessary for or pre- 
liminary to the acquisition of private and public 
property required for construction including un- 
paid bills incurred for such purposes, all to be 
expended by the Commissioner of Subways and 
Superhighways in connection with the improve- 
ment of the Wacker Drive Extension from W. Lake

Progress Reports on Construction of West Route of Comprehensive Superhighway System 

— Placed on File. 

The Commitee on Finance submitted reports recommending that the City Council Place on File reports 
from the Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways concerning progress made on construction of the 
West Route of the Comprehensive Superhighway System. 

On motion of Alderman Wagner the committee's recommendations were concurred in. 

Said reports, signed by V. E. Gunlock, Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways, dated April 1, 1952, 
read respectively as follows: 

"In order that your Committee and the City Council may be advised as to the progress being made on 
the construction of the West Route Superhighway, I wish to report as follows: 

"The award of Contract Section Congress Street 2527.2-T of the West Route Superhighway to Robert R. 
Anderson Company, providing for construction of Incline Structures and Street Reconstruction, Transit 
Relocation, was authorized by the City Council June 14, 1951 (C. J. p. 394). The specifications provide that 
the contract shall be completed by May 16, 1952. It is now apparent that this contract .will not be com- 
pleted within the specified time. 

"The contract provides that under certain conditions, the Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways 
may grant to the contractor an extension of time occasioned by delays which are entirely beyond the con- 
tractor's control. 

"The contract also provides that if the contractor does not meet the requirements as to time, progress 
and final completion of the work within the period specified, then the City may declare the contract for- 
feited. However, inasmuch as it appears that the Superhighway completion will not be delayed by 
permitting the contractor to finish this work, it is our opinion that the interests of the City will be best 
served by allowing the contractor, upon the consent of its surety, to continue and complete the contract 
even though there be a technical default as to the time of completion." 

"In order that your Committee and the City Council may be advised as to the progress being made in the 
construction of the West Route Superhighway, I wish to report as follows: 

"The award of Contract Section Congress Street 2424.15-D of the West Route Superhighway to George D. 
Hardin providing for the construction of the Pumping Station and Discharge Conduit, S. Desplaines Street 
to South Branch of Chicago River, was authorized by the City Council May 10, 1951 (C. J. p. 142). The 
specifications provide that the contract shall be completed by May 1, 1952. It is now apparent that this 
contract will not be completed within the specified time. 

"The contract provides that under certain conditions, the Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways 
may grant to the contractor an extension of time occasioned by delays which are entirely beyond the con- 
tractor's control. 

"The contract also provides that, if the contractor does not meet the requirements as to time, progress 
and final completion of the work within the period specified, then the City may declare the contract for- 
feited. However, inasmuch as it appears that the Superhighway completion will not be delayed by permit- 
ting the contractor to finish this work, it is our opinion that the interests of the City will be best served by 
allowing the contractor, upon the consent of his surety, to continue and complete the contract, even though 
there be a technical default as to the time of completion."

This program was rather carefully charted so 
that a given amount of work could be done each 
year on all projects with the contractors and man- 
power available. The financing was spread over 
the yeslrs 1946 to 1964 inclusive so that the 19 
year average of tax levies needed to retire the 
bonded debt would not exceed $12,000,000, or more 
than two million less than the average bond and 
interest requirements of the previous 26 years. 

On September 29, 1947 the City Council a,uthor- 
ized additions to the program as follows: 

New Corporate Bonds — 
Rehousing $15,000,000 



Slum Clearance 15,000,000 

Police Equipment 500,000 

Fire Equipment 1,500,000 

Total $32,000,000 

On June 14, 1950 the City Council authorized 
the issuance of Subway Revenue bonds in amount 
of $2,000,000. 

On July 11, 1951 additions to the program were 
made for bridge construction. Street Lighting, Po- 
lice and Fire Buildings, and Refuse Disposal as 
follows : 

Corporate Bonds —

Street Lighting 8,000,000 

Police and Fire Buildings 2,000,000 

Refuse Disposal 2,000,000 

Total $20,000,000 

There has just been authorized (April 16, 1952) 
$46,000,000 of Corporate Bonds, $21,000,000 of 
which is in addition to the program as presented 
in 1946. These bonds were authorized for the fol- 
lowing purposes:

Superhighway 15,000,000 

House of Correction 4,000,000 

Fire Equipment 2,000,000 

Total $46,000,000 

Additions to the program increased the total 
for all projects from $298,000,000 to $373,000,000. 
At the time the program was initiated the City 
debt limit was $236,611,421. It is now on latest 
valuations $438,000,000. As of January 1, 1952 
bonds outstanding amounted to $115,966,000; 
bonds authorized but unsold amount to $74,640,000. 
If authorized by the voters June 2 an additional 
$46,000,000 would have to be added to these fig- 
ures. The potential bonded indebtedness would 
then be $236,606,000. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Clarence P. Wagner^ 
Chairman.

COMMITTEE ON LOCAL TRANSPORTATION.

I 



Proposal for Action to Restrain Chicago Transit 

Authority from Discontinuing Certain 

Elevated-Railroad Service — Action on 

Committee's Recom^mendation 

Deferred. 

The Committee on Local Transportation, to which 
had been referred (April 16, 1952, page 2265) a pro- 
posed resolution to direct necessary legal proceedings 
for the purpose of restraining the Chicago Transit 
Authority from curtailing service on the Humboldt 
Park and Douglas Park branches of the elevated-rail- 
road system, submitted a report recommending that 
the City Council adopt a substitute proposed resolu- 
tion (transmitted therewith) reading as follows: 

Whereas, the Chicago Transit Board on April 
15, 1952 passed Ordinance No. 52-66 authorizing 
and directing the General Manager of the Chicago 
Transit Authority to abandon the Douglas Park 
and Roosevelt stations on the Douglas Park Branch 
of the Rapid Transit System, Ordinance No. 52-68 
authorizing and directing the General Manager to 
discontinue that portion of the Ravenswood Ele- 
vated service which is now given south of Fuller- 



ton station on Sundays and holidays and to con- 
tinue to operate the late night and early morning 
service with its south terminal at Fullerton sta- 
tion. Ordinance No. 52-69 authorizing and directing 
the General Manager of the Chicago Transit Au- 
thority to discontinue all service on the Normal 
Park Branch of the Rapid Transit System except 
during the periods of approximately 6:30 A. M. to 
9:00 A.M. and between 4:30 P.M. and 7:00 P.M. 
on week days, and Ordinance No. 52-70 authorizing 
and directing the General Manager of the Chicago 
Transit Authority to discontinue the operation 
of all service on the Humboldt Park Branch of the 
Rapid Transit System and to abandon all stations 
on said branch and ultimately to dismantle the 
structures and appurtenances thereto constituting 
the Humboldt Park Branch and the disposition of 
the right-of-way; and 

Whereas, the execution of these ordinances 
would affect the enjoyment of adequate Rapid 
Transit facilities by a large segment of the people 
of Chicago and would further congest traffic on 
the serviced streets of the areas affected and 
otherwise discommode and injure the interests of 
the people in the areas.

Presented by 
ALDERMAN PACINI (10th Ward) : 

U. S. Congress Memorialized to Provide Funds for 

Payment for Damage Caused by High 

Lake Level; Etc. 

A proposed resolution reading as follows: 



Whereas^ On this date the level of Lake Michi- 
gan stands at 581.8 elevation above Mean Tide at 
New York, in feet, — on the chart of the United 
State District Engineer at Chicago; and 

Whereas, This is the highest level of the lake 
recorded on such chart since 1929 — or within a 
period approximating 23 years; and 

Whereas, Such high level of Lake Michigan, 
coupled with high winds has, is and it is presumed 
will continue to undermine and wash away a large 
amount of Chicago's famed lake front — including 
private property, beaches, parks, lake shore drives 
and street ends — and has, is and it is presumed 
that it will continue to damage large harbors and 
dock facilities and industries at Chicago — including 
the City of Chicago's lakefront airport, being Mer- 
rill C Meigs Field, and its South District Filtration 
Plant, and the new Filtration Plant now under con- 
struction for the Central and North District of the 
City of Chicago — and thereby lessen the employ- 
ment possibilities and the war effort of this indus- 
trial city at the center of the nation ; and 

Whereas, The increased lake level on this date 
was brought about by an increased amount of wa- 
ter in Lake Michigan that did not originate in nor 
was occasioned by acts of the City of Chicago or its 
residents; and 

Whereas, Equity demands that those persons, 
and those shipping interests and those industrial 
and private property owners and those local gov- 
ernmental agencies who have suffered damage from 
the high level of Lake Michigan from time to time 
be compensated for such 'damage ; and 

Whereas, Good judgment demands that immedi- 
ate steps be taken to control the level of Lake 
Michigan at Chicago — by diversion into the Chi- 
cago Drainage Canal or otherwise — and also to 
erect jetties or groins or breakwaters, to the end 
that there will not be a recurrence of such shore 
damage; now, therefore. 

Be It Resolved by the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

That the Congress of the United States be and it 
hereby is reauested and petitioned to authorize and 
order the Chief Engineer of the United States 
Army 

1. To survey the shore of Lake Michigan at 
Chicago and determine the extent and dollar 
value of the damage suffered by property own- 
ers, private or industrial, and the owners of lake 
shipping facilities and governmental agencies — 
and to compensate them from Federal funds for 
such damage; 

2. To cause plans to be prepared for jetties, 
groins, breakwaters and the like, and to let con- 
tracts for and carry to completion out of Federal 
funds such construction as will prevent a recur- 
rence of such damage ; and 

3. To recognize the existence of the emergency 
that now exists at Chicago and to apply such 
funds as he may have available now, or those 
that may be appropriated by the Congress of the 
United States for this purpose, to the relief of 
this emergency. 

On motion of Alderman Pacini said proposed reso- 
lution was adopted.

Tribute Paid to Late Anthony Czarnecki. 

Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor, presented 
the following proposed resolution : 

Whereas^ With sincere regret the City Council 
has learned of the death of Anthony Czarnecki on 
May 4, 1952; and

visor to thousands had spent his life literally in 
the service and interests of the common man 
through distinguished contributions to the life of 
Chicago and to the country of his adoption, as 
office holder, soldier and civic and religious leader;, 
and 

Whereas^ During the fifty-five years covered by 
his career as a news reporter "Tony" Czarnecki 
acted not only as an onlooker to the activities of 
the world whose development he reported, but as 
an active and influential participant: he served on 
the Board of Education, Board of Election Com- 
missioners, as Collector of Customs, in the Mili- 
tary Intelligence Department of the United States 
Army during World War I, and he was nationally 
known as a writer on religious subjects and for- 
eign affairs; and 

Whereas^ His interests were widespread and 
far reaching and his efforts brought to him many 
honors: Pope Pius XI conferred upon him the title 
of Knight of St. Gregory; Paderewski decorated 
him with the important Order of Poland Restituta ; 
he was later decorated with the Cavalier Crown 
of Italy; Now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the people of Chicago and their 
Mayor and this City Council hereby express their 
regret at the passing of their friend and pro-

the records of the City Council, and a copy

REPORT MADE BY CITY CLERK AS TO PROCLA- 
MATIONS OF MAYOR FILED IN CITY 
CLERK'S OFFICE. 

The City Clerk reported that proclamations of 
Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor, relating to the 
respective subjects designated below, were filed in 
the City Clerk's office on May 21, 1952, which pro- 
clamations read respectively as follows: 

School Safety Patrol Day. 

Whereas, the School Safety Patrol members, 
faithfully contriving to protect their classmates 
from traffic hazards, have through the years 
wrought a significant reduction in the number of 
injuries and fatalities to children; 

Whereas, the School Safety Patrols exemplify 
our highest ideals of civic responsibility in devel- 
oping qualities of leadership, dependability and 
punctuality among the youngsters who execute 
their duties with devotion and at personal sacrifice ; 
and 

Whereas, this program has saved more than 
5,000 Chicago school children from violent death 
in traffic accidents in the past twenty-eight years; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, in acknowledgment of this 
service, do hereby proclaim Saturday, May 10, 
1952, as School Safety Patrol Day, and I urge all 
citizens to pause and pay tribute to the boys and 
girls who are enrolled in School Safety Patrols, 
and give full cooperation in this invaluable traffic 
safety effort. 

Dated this 7th day of May, A. D. 1952. 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor. 



Student Nurse Week. 

Whereas, there is a constantly increasing need 
for trained nurses to care for the sick and help 
maintain the health of our people here at home; 
and 

Whereas, the national emergency has created 
new and urgent demands upon the nursing profes- 
sion to minister to the suffering of our brave men 
in the armed forces ; and 

Whereas, in war or in peace, the women of the 
nursing profession have dedicated themselves to 
the service of others; in famine or in flood, during 
illness, injury or other man- or nature-made dis- 
asters, the nurse is one to whom we first turn in 
our time of distress; and regardless of race, color, 
or creed we are as one in the mind of the trained 
nurse if we require her skilled services to relieve 
pain and contribute to physical comfort; and 

Whereas, very fine accredited schools of nursing 
are operated by over thirty hospitals in the City 
of Chicago ; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the week 
of May 4th to May 11th, 1952, as Student Nurse 
Week, and suggest that our citizens pay special 
tribute during that week to the nursing profession. 
It is to be hoped that this observance might serve 
as a means of encouraging qualified young women 
in our community to give serious thought to mak- 
ing a fin6 career for themselves in the nursing pro- 
fession. 

Dated this second day of May, 1952. 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor. 



Nurses Day in Chicago. 

Whereas, the fourth annual Nurses Day Parade, 
under the sponsorship of the Novena to Our Sor- 
rowful Mother, will be held on Friday, May 23 ; and 

Whereas, this observance, held as a tribute to 
the women of the nursing profession for the pur- 
pose of calling public attention to the increasing 
need for trained nurses in our city as well as 
throughout the nation, is significant in connection 
with the well-being and health of all of our citizens ; 
and 

Whereas, the profession of nursing, because of 
greatly increased hospital and health services as 
well as research facilities, today offers to qualified 
young women greater possibilities than ever before 
in the noble and humanitarian profession ; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim Friday, 
May 23, 1952 as Nurses Day in Chicago, and in 
so doing urge the people of this city to give their 
fullest support to the appropriate observance of 
this occasion and to the high objectives for which 
it has been designated. 

Dated this 14th day of May, A. D. 1952. 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor. 

Public Library Week in Chicago. 

Whereas, at no other time in our history has it 
been so important that all people have adequate 
access to rich resources of information in order to 
cope with the complex problems facing the nation; 
and 

Whereas, the Chicago Public Library is an essen- 
tial instrument of democracy in providing, through 
the Central Library and its system of extension 
agencies, the materials and services for formal and 
informal education for all citizens of Chicago which 
is vital to an informed electorate and to the per- 
petuation of the American way of life; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Public Library plays an 
important role in bringing books and readers to- 
gether in such a way that the great potential re- 
source of ideas bound within the covers of books 
is released to serve the numerous needs arising 
in the daily lives of Chicago citizens of all ages, 
at work — at home — and at play; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Public Library in the 
eighty years of its existence has issued 430,720,790 
books to the citizens of Chicago for their enlighten- 
ment and enjoyment; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim and de- 
signate the week of May 11 to May 17, 1952 as 
Public Library Week in Chicago, and urge all 
citizens to participate in the programs and events 
offered by the Library during this week. I also 
urge all of the people of Chicago to use the facil- 
ities of this great Library system throughout the 
year for their personal development as individuals 
and as citizens. 

Dated this 29th day of April, A. D. 1952. 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor.

JOURNAI^-CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



May 21, 1952 



Court Proceedings Involving Enforcement of 
Chapter 28 of Municipal Code of Chicago. 

Also the following communication addressed to the 
City Council under date of May 21, 1952, signed by 
J. F. Grossman, Special Assistant Corporation Coun- 
sel, which was Placed on File: 

"On March 12, 1952 ten persons operating livery 
vehicles filed suit in the Superior Court of Cook 
County to invalidate the revised Chapter 28 of the 
Municipal Code of Chicago passed December 20, 
1951, as amended January 30, 1952, relating to 
the licensing and regulation of public passenger 
vehicles. Subsequently, about one hundred other 
persons engaged in the livery business joined 
plaintiffs in this suit. Plaintiffs and the inter- 
venors applied for a temporary injunction until 
final adjudication of the validity of the ordinance. 
The motion for injunction was argued before Judge 
John F. Haas for almost a week, resulting in an 
order enjoining the City and its officers from en- 
forcing the following provisions of the ordinance: 

1. Section 28-9, which provides that no public 
passenger vehicle licenses shall be subject 
to voluntary assignment or transfer by op- 
eration of law, except in the event of the 
cabman's induction or recall into the armed 
forces of the United States for active duty 
or in the event of the cabman's death. 

2. Section 28-12, which requires every cabman 
to carry public liability and property dam- 
age insurance and workmen's compensation 
insurance for his employees. 

3. Section 28-19, which disqualifies a person for 
a livery vehicle license and a taxicab license 
at the same time and prohibits a person hav- 
ing a livery license from association with 
any one for taxicab call service; also limiting 
livery licenses to renewal of 1951 licenses 
unless, after a public hearing, it is determined 
that public convenience and necessity re- 
quire additional livery service. 

4. Section 28-19.2, which prohibits parking of 
livery vehicles on the public streets longer 
than necessary to accept passengers in an- 
swer to a call for service through the sta- 
t
